Plant ID - blue flowers

I couldn't keep that one. Easy from seed but didn't last once I'd planted them out.

There's also C. plumbaginoides, a spreader with amazing red purple leaves with the blue flowers. Nice in a pot and more likely to have the coloured leaves if  a bit starved and dry

I should think it's willmottianum then chicky. Flowers for ages and popular with insects including the hummingbird hawkmoth. Very easy to grow.

For real hardiness you want C hederifolium or C. coum. Not as extreme in colour but will be with you for years

It's a ceratostigma, I think C. willmottianum 

A pic of the shape of the shrub would conform (or not)

What am I?

Yes, it just picked them up off the ground and spewed the bits out of the other end.

Nothing to do with me losing them under a heap of prunings

I think more plants die of over watering than they do of under watering

I love a book Fishy. 

Apart from anything else I go cross-eyed if I look at this little computer for too long.
